The Culinary Institute of Petit Lyon was established 1979   I felt it had to be reworked to fit our rural life style today. The bull seemed the first good idea, created in a woodtype block for 1879 in America, a great find along with the typeface of Aldine Expanded..... http://www.losttype.com/font/?name=aldine... a great pioneering feel :)

Seasonal & regional farmers driven cuisine

Ten Twenty Four is a simple, country eatery committed to local producers and inspired by the seasons.
We embrace the region’s bounty through the seasons from farmers and purveyors who are committed
to sustainable and sound practices, known to be trusted, to see us through the threats of an ever
changing world. We see the table service and cooking of these products to be a privilege and hope
that they remain as pure as possible with the absence of toxins & pollutants. In many cases our
Growers & Purveyors are vital partners in our endeavour and indeed in our lives. The joy then, of
a natural table, through service and sympathetic cookery becomes also a resource that binds us all,

As family, business, and friends.

We see the wine growing regions of the East Coast of New Zealand to be our focus.
